NATURAL DAM, Ark. — Sometimes it’s a good idea to just get away to some peace and quiet. 

THV11’s Adam Bledsoe and Theba Lolley made their way to discover a natural dam in Natural Dam, Arkansas.

Natural Dam is located near the Oklahoma border near Fort Smith. The actual dam is a wonderful place to kill some time and gain some tranquility.

A nearby rope swing may be utilized to take a dip in the cool water or you may decide to walk down stream and relax in the swimming hole shadowed by gigantic boulders. 

This location lacked modern conveniences like bathrooms and restaurants so plan ahead. Adam and Theba packed a lunch and ate on the bluffs overlooking the dam and stream.
